In Black and White: an Eighteenth-Century View of Paper Cutting and Silhouettes
Author of The Journal of a Georgian Gentleman Mike Rendell will talk about the development of shadow pictures (‘silhouettes') and the life and works of Augustin Edouart.
Using delightful and intricate paper cut-outs made by his own family in the 1780s this talk looks at the unusual way in which these family treasures have captured moments from every day life including fashion, farming and travel.
